The day I left Wilder Valley, I swore I’d never return. My dreams were too big for this small town, and I was determined to make it in LA, even if that meant leaving behind the man I loved.
Now I’m back, broken-hearted and publicly humiliated after a colossal breakup live-streamed to the masses. I have no career or money to show for my twenty-three years away. If I could hide out anywhere else on the planet, I would.
Instead, I resort to taking the only job in town. A nanny gig for my high school sweetheart.
Life didn’t go as planned for him either.
Ryan Wilder might be running his family ranch and looking like a tall glass of water while doing it, but he’s also drowning in responsibility, raising three children on his own, and dealing with the challenges of caring for his aging father.
We strike up a deal to help each other out. He offers me a place to stay along with a steady paycheck. In exchange I keep his teenagers out of trouble while figuring out my next step. Everything is perfect until those pesky little feelings from our youth come roaring back.
This time is different, though. We’ve experienced life and we know what we want. At least, I thought I did. All the dreams I had for myself existed outside of this town, but the more time I spend with Ryan and his family, the more I question everything. Including my wild heart.
Wild Hearts is a second chance, small town romance between a single dad in his forties and the one who got away. It's the first book in the Wilder Valley series and can be read as a standalone.
Wild Hearts will be in print in both the main and special edition covers.
